Shrimp Pesto Pasta

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked whole-wheat blend pasta (like Barilla Plus Rotini)
  • 1 cup cooked frozen cooked shrimp, lightly thawed (if the tail is on, remove tail)
  • 3 tablespoons prepared pesto (like Armanino frozen pesto)
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 cup finely chopped red bell pepper or 1 medium tomato, chopped

Preparation:

  1. In medium, microwave-safe bowl, toss pasta, shrimp, and pesto together. Warm briefly in the microwave for a minute or two if needed. If the pasta is hot, it will usually warm the pesto and shrimp quite a bit.
  2. Top with shredded Parmesan and chopped red bell pepper or tomato and serve.
